Button description Uniforms not worn

Comment Photographic evidence strongly suggests that informal jackets were worn, and that marked company buttons therefore never existed (see link).

The BET subsequently formed a subsidiary - the Wrexham and District Electric Tramways Company Ltd - which it tasked with rebuilding, electrifying and operating the former horse line.
